Yeah, I'm Australian. We don't say "mom".

Most people say "mum" in Britain.

If you put "doesn't" instead of "does not" it'll be counted wrong. Why? I don't know.

Report. Should be accepted :)

Mama is a perfectly good synonym for 'Mom'. 'Mom' is an American term: I am not American.

"Mama" is generally accepted. What was the complete sentence?

It's possible this place was just missed, in which case you should report it.

I wouldn't be impressed if duo changes нашу for его :ь

I think its kind of dumb to be using a name like Tim when learning Russian since Tim and you sound and are written almost the exact same in Russian.
